Wilmington. N. C, Nov. 17th, 1886. 

The Baptist State Convention met this day at 10 o'clock 
A. M., in the First Baptist church in Wilmington. After 
singing "Jesus, lover of my soul," Elder C. T. Bailey, of 
Raleigh, the President of the last session, called the Con- 
vention to order, and invited Elder C. DURHAM, of Dur- 
ham, to conduct devotional exercises. Elder DURHAM read

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

To the Baptist State Cowoenlion of North Carolina : 

It is a very pleasant task to be permitted to chronicle such glorious results as 
have accompanied the efforts of God's people for the extension of His king- _ 
dom. This has been a remarkable year, as is attested by the history of the 
dealings of divine Providence with His servants in all departments of vv'ork. 
At home and abroad, in our State and elsewhere, the richest tokens of the 
presence and power of the Holy Spirit have been manifest, and untold bless- 
ings have accompanied the preaching of the Word everywhere. 

STATE MISSIONS. 

The progress in this department of the cause of Christ has been marvellous. 
A larger number of missionaries have been sent out than at any time since our 
Convention was organized, and the fruits of their labors have been far greater 
than ever before. Some of the most difficult fields in the State are yielding 
in their opposition to the cause of truth, and some sections which had been re- 
garded by some as almost discouraging have received the messengers of peace^ 
and rich harvests have been gathered. 

The blessings shared by the missionaries have been vouchsafed likewise to^ 
the pastors who have labored so faithfully for the Master, and the most cheer- 
ing news has come up to us from every part of North Carolina. Protracted 
meetings have been held in nearly all the churches, and, what is still better, re- 
vivals of pure religion have attended these meetings, until, from the best in- 
formation which is at hand, nearly or quite twelve thotisand souls have been 
" buried with Christ by baptism." And the net gain in the white Baptist 
churches of the State must be at least eight thousand ! Behold what great 
things the Lord has done for us. 

Hyde county, without a Baptist church or Baptist minister, is still appealing 
to us, and there are the most gracious opportunities for the success of our Re- 
deemer's cause there, as well as in most of the other destitute sections of our 
Commonwealth. There were never brighter prospects before us for occupying 
the old Pamlico region, the beautiful valley of the Catawba, and the other neg- 
lected portions of the State. These fields, which are " white unto the har- 
vest," are urging your Board to give them the glad news of salvation. The 
men, too, can be had ; but we lack the funds. Will the Baptist hosts repre- 
sented by this Convention furnish the means ? 



lO MINUTES OF THE 

A SIGGESTION. 

Your Board would suggest that this Convention make some arrangements by 
which the missionaries can be more promptly paid their dues at the end of each 
quarter. Some of them have undergone the most trying ordeals this year, be- 
cause the Board was not able to make payments when they became due. 

The ministerial students in their labors during their vacation met with very 
gratifying success. As will be seen from the tabulated reports, twenty of them 
have reported to your Board an aggregate of 62 protracted meetings held, 595 
sermons preached, witnessed 717 professions of faith, and 220 baptisms. 

CONCLUSION. 

The blessings which Almighty God has bestowed upon us in every part of 
the territory of this Convention this year surpass anything of the kind we have 
ever witnessed. More Associations co-operating in the work of the Board, 
more new churches and Sunday Schools organized, more houses of worship 
erected, more funds contributed to every object of benificence claiming the 
attention of our Baptist brotherhood, more wanderers from our Father's house 
reclaimed, more joy in heaven over lost souls led to Jesus. 

Only one matter of regret have we to mention — the lack of funds to pay the 
missionaries their dues promptly. But when we consider the stringency of the 
times, and the further fact that we have raised $2,000 more for State Missions 
this year than last, we may congratulate ourselves upon having to report no 
debt. 

Your Board would ask advice. There are several new and most inviting 
fields heretofore unoccupied by us, and in some instances having no preaching 
•of any kind, which are rapidly opening to us and urging us to give them the 
gospel of peace. In some of these places people who belong to other donom- 
inations, and others who do not profess faith at all. have agreed to make lib- 
eral subscriptions toward the support of a Baptist minister. One of our mis- 
sionaries was recently told that, if he would go over into Hyde county he 
•could organize a Baptist church with a hundred members in one week. What 
shall we do ? With ten thousand dollars a year for the next ten years, we be- 
lieve that, with God's favors, such as have attended our efforts this year, we 
can plant a Baptist church in every neighborhood in North Carolina. The 
"fields are white unto the harvest," and men are standing, with their sickles 
in hand, ready for the reaping. Shall we go forward and send them ? What 
is the answer of the ninety-seven thousand Baptists of this Convention ?

others have been organized so recently that no report could be expected from 
them. 

From the experience of the past year, and looking forward to the next, we 
think that the usefulness of the Committee would be greatly increased by the 
appointment of Associational Vice-Presidents, whose duty it shall be to forward 
the work in their respective Associations. 

Praying th.it God's blessing may continue on this department of His work, 
this report is, 

Respectfully submitted.

OUTSIDE MISSIO.NARY WORK. 

There are a few of the Associations which do not report their work through 
the State Board, and olhers which report partially. These have done a good 
work, whose results, so far as I can learn, are as follows: In the Cape Fear, 
Elder W. J. Ward has preached sixty-one sermons; in the Cedar Creek Elders 
J. M. Beasley and W. C. West, the former reporting one church organized; in 
the Little River Elders J. L. Ennis. A. N. Campbell, Jos. Salmon, T. J. Hunt 
H. W. Graham. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 
1!Y THEO. WHITFIELD, D. D. 

Since your last meeting our beloved young brethren, D. W. Herring and R. 
T. Bryan, with their wives, have entered upon their labors in China. They 
sailed in December. Bro. Herring located at Shanghai, and Bro. Bryan at 
Chinkiang. They arrived none too soon, for Bro. Hunnex and the venerable 
Dr. Yates were quite worn down, and have already been compelled to retire 
awhile for rest. Our young brethren write encouragingly. Of course they can 
do little until the language is learned. 

Besides these, the Board has sent as reinforcements, two ministers, with 
their wives, and one unmarried lady to Brazil; Mrs. David to Africa; one min- 
ister, with his wife, and one unmarried minister to Mexico. 

These thirteen new laborers add their appeal to that of those before them in 
the foreign work, for your prayers and contributions. 

The whole force now employed by the Board is twenty-eight ministers, 
thirty ladies and fifty-five native assistants. According to the last report of the 
Board, its receipts fr^m the churches were $83,404.31; and we are sorry to add, 
there was a deficit in its treasury. The membership in the Missions was 1,398, 
and the baptisms for one year 169. 

From Mexico Bro. Powell writes: " The work everywhere was never so en- 
couraging. Our great need is ministers and houses of worship. God has truly 
blessed His servants here. If the Board will only increase our working force 
constantly we will take Mexico for Christ and His truth in a few years." 

From Brazil Bro. Bagby writes: " The field is full of promise." And Bro. 
Daniel writes: " Bro. Taylor and his noble wife are the most earnest mission- 
aries I ever saw. They scarcely cease from labor long enough to eat and sleep." 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 23 

From Rome Bro. Eager writes: " We need the sympathy and prayers of our 
brethren at home; we need funds to enable as to occupy new and inviting 
fields." 

From China Bro. Graves writes: " For what God has enabled us to accom- 
plish, we bless His name, and look hopefully for greater results in the future." 

SOME THINGS ENCOURAGING. 

The last annual report of the Foreign Mission Board showed the largest sum 
ever contributed by North Carolina Baptists to Foreij^n Missions, $6,021.57. 
The report of your Treasurer will show that he has received $5,734.45, while 
$547-75 have been sent to Dr. Tupper direct, making $6,282.20. This is 
$964.27 more than the Baptists of the State ever gave for Foreign Missions any 
one year. 

The number of contributing churches within your bounds is increasing. Last 
year they numbered four hundred and sixty in twenty-eight Associations. 

A Central Committee for Ladies' Missionary Societies has been organized 
and has, through its energetic officers, increased the interest in Foreign Mis- 
sions. 

North Carolina Baptists have now three ministers preaching the gospel to 
the heathen. Heretofore they have had but one. 

But has our progress been comparable to our means, or to the magnitude of 
the work ? 

In eighteen of our leading Associations the number of contributing churches 
increased in four years from 1881 only sixty-nine. Last year four hundred and 
one churches of this Convention gave nothing, while those contributing aver- 
aged only seven and one-half cents per member. 

With nearly half our churches giving nothing, and the contributions of the 
rest so small are we not chargeable as a people with indifference to foreign Mis- 
sions ? 

There are one thousand millions of heathen and Mohammedans without the 
gospel. They die thirty millions a year; and their number increases two mil- 
lions a year. What are we doing in comparison with these tremendous facts. 

If ever it can^be our duty to turn our attention to foreign Missions, it is our 
duty now. Almost one-sixth of our population are Baptist Church members. 
In our Convention are three hundred and forty ministers in charge, and nine 
hundred and eighty-seven churches. No State or country is more thoroughly 
Baptist. Surely, if any people should turn to the heathen "we more." 

It is a foreign^missionary era. The christian hosts of America are moving in 
the work. Their tramp is heavier every year. One thousand and seventy-nine 
ordained American missionaries are at the gates of heathenism. Can we doubt 
that God is calling and the Spirit leading to this great enterprise ? We are send- 
ing very few men and giving very little to it. 



24 MINUTES OF THE 

WHAT DO WE NEED ? 

1st. We need to raise our contributions to eight thousand dollars, the sum 
asked of us by the Foreign Mission Board, and the very least that can be con- 
sidered our proportion of the sum absolutely necessary to support our present 
force. 

2d. We need more sympathy for the hundreds of millions of people who are 
sinking into eternal woe without hearing of a Saviour. 

3d. We need a more obedient regard for the Lord's command, that His peo- 
ple shall make disciples of all the nations. 

HOME MISSIONS. 
BY REV. A. G. m'MANAWAY. 

I'he following statistics are taken from a circular recently issued by the 
Home Mission Board: 

Received last year about .. $86,000 

EXPENDED. 

In church building $25,000 

In mission work . 69,500 

A total of $94,500 

An excess above its receipts of $S, 500 

WHAT WAS DONE. 

It supported 255 missionaries, who preached in 649 places more than 21,000 
sermons to about 100,000 people. They baptized 4,812 believers; received by 
letter 2,344 others; making addition of 6,156 persons. They had 326 Sunday 
schools, in which were 12,500 teachers and pupils. They constituted 70 new 
churches, and built 49 houses of worship. 

For the present year the Board must have funds to support an e(|ual number 
of missionaries, and build an equal number of houses of worship, and $8,500 to 
meet the deficiency of last year. 

For its new work, it needs for Cuban Missions *;5,ooo and for work among 
the colored people $5,000 more. 

We are glad to note an increased interest among the Baptists of North Caro- 
lina in the work of this Board. Nearly twice as much money has been contrib- 
uted to this Board, and acknowledged by our Treasurer within the last six 
months as during the same period of last year. If the brethren and sisters 
who have been appointed by the Associations to represent Home Missions in 
their respective churclies do their whole duty, we shall send Dr. Tichenor 
$3,000 by April 1st, 18S7.

Chairman Board of Trustees. 



30 MINUTES OF THE 

Bro. BroUGHTON read the report of the Sunday School 
Board, as follows : 

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

To the Baptist State Convention of N^orth Carolina : 

The interest in the Sunday School work is upon the increase. Year by year 
the followers of Jesus Christ are coming more and more to see its importance, 
and are beginning to realize the fact that God has assigned " to every man his 
work." We only wish that all Christians would rightly appreciate the power- 
ful influence of the Scriptures, if properly taught, upon the hearts and minds 
of the people. Then we might hope to see an interesting and flourishing Sun- 
day School in every neighborhood in North Carolina. 

More of the churches are striving to keep up their schools during the whole 
year than formerly. At an Association which the Corresponding Secretary 
recently attended, he found that out of sixteen schools reported, thirteen were 
kept up during the entire year. This is indeed encouraging. But if many of 
the churches in the State wish to follow this example, it will be necessary for 
them to pay more attention to two things : 

1. The comfortable condition of their houses of worship. Without a good 
stove and warm house, it is difficult, if not wrong, to keep the scholars in at- 
tendance. 

2. The necessary appliances for studying and teaching the Book are by no 
means of less importance. Every Sunday School should be supplied with a 
sufificient nu^mber of copies of God's Word, good song books and lesson helps. 
These can l)e obtained best and cheapest from 

OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL SUPPLY STORE, 

at Raleigh, which is the property of this Convention, and which has already 
blessed hundreds of poor Sunday Schools by its donations and aid of various 
kinds. The patronage has been very greatly increased during the year, and 
yet there are many schools and churches which do not purchase from this con- 
venient source, forgetting that every order sent to the Supply Store is adding 
.something to the treasury of the Baptist State Convention, and thus enabling 
us to help indigent Sunday Schools and organize new ones. 

The Supply Store has extended its aid this year much more widely than here- 
tofore. Its expenses have been considerably increased, too, from the fact that 
the Corresi'onding Secretary was compelled to be absent from the office most 
of the year, which necessitated the employment of an assistant nearly the whole 
time, and likewise made traveling expenses larger. And yet the finances are 
in a good condition. It is to be deeply regretted, however, that the churches 
and Sunday Schools throughout the State have ceased to make contributions to 
this cause. Our Supply Store should not be left to pay all its expenses and 
then do all the beneficence in this department of our work. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 3 1 

SUNDAY SCHOOL INSTITUTES. 

Your Corresponding Secretary, during the spring and summer, conducted a 
number of Sunday School Institutes at convenient points in different parts of 
the State, which seemed to be productive of no little good. 

RECOMMEND.\TIONS. 

1. Vour Board would suggest the great importance of holding a Baptist 
■State Sunday School Convention, at least biennially. 

2. We would also urge the pastors and Sunday School Superintendents to 
take regular collections in their churches and Sunday Schools for the benefi- 
cence to be extended by the Board. 

3. There is a growing demand for colportage work, and we should be glad to 
see some arrangements made to prosecute it.

32 MINUTES OF THE 

AID EXTENDED. 

The Supply Store has done much more in this direction this year than form- 
erly. Ninety-five Sunday Schools which had not the means to supply their 
needs have been assisted, and sixty-three ministers have received aid in pur- 
chases for their libraries, &c. The extent of these donations will be seen from 
the following : 

Bibles given away 265 

Testaments given away .. 719 

Whole number of copies of Scriptures given away 984 

Pages of Tracts and Papers distributed, 25,000 

Value of Scriptures donated § 108 87

OliLIGATIONS. 

We take tliis occasion to express our appreciation for the favors shown us by 
the American Baptist Publication Society in a grant of 510 Bibles and 1,000 
Testaments, whose value was $187, and which have been used to supply the 
needy. We are also under obligations to the publishers of the following val- 
uable publications, which have come regularly to our office : The Biblical 
Recorder, The Sunday School Times, The Baptist Teacher, Kind Words, 
and The Transcript and Messenger. • 

STATISTICS. 

New Sunday Schools organized this year — 51 

Present number of Sunday Schools, (approximated) — 8oo- 

Number of attendants, (approximated) 62,000 

CONCLUSION. 

The success of the year's efforts has been truly inspiring, and we_^are encour- 
aged to yet greater endeavors for the great cause. And there is much need for 
it, as there are at least two hundred Baptist churches within the bounds of this 
Convention, which have no Sunday Schools. We must not content ourselves- 
until we have taken the land for Jesus Christ.

President S. S. Board.

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 35 

On the motion to adopt, remarks were made by Brethren 
Brouohton, Harrell, Nelson, Howell, Allen and 
Manly. The report was then adopted. 

Bro. Heck then offered the following resolutions, which 
were adopted : 

Whereas, We desire to promote the Master's work by teaching our people 
to give systematically ; therefore 

Resolved, That we ask every Sunday School to make the effort to secure one 
cent per month from each member, to be given on the 2nd Sunday in the 
month, said contributions to be forwarded to the Sunday School Board at 
Raleigh, and by them to be used in organizing new schools and in extending 
the work generally as they may direct. 

2. Whereas, Feeling the necessity and importance of the Sunday School 
work, and recognizing the great destitution in many sections of our State in 
this particular ; therefore 

Resolved, That we pledge ourselves to do all we can to build up the Sunday 
School cause in our own churches, and especially to establish them in the Bap- 
tist churches and destitute neighborhoods in our Associations that are now 
without them. 

Elder Hufha:\I read the following, which was adopted, 
and the Secretaries instructed to send a copy to the West- 
ern Convention : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS OF WESTERN N. 
C. BAPTIST CONVENTION. 
Your committee having examined the whole matter referred to them as care- 
fully as they were able, after hearing a full statement from the messengers of 
the Western Convention, do respectfully submit, that there is, so far as we can 
see, no just cause of complaint! on the part of the Western Convention, so far 
as any action of any officer of your body is concerned. Any feeling which may 
exist among our brethren of the West, has arisen, in part, from misunderstand- 
ing and in part from a natural difference of opinion. 

There has never been, on the part of your body, any feeling of rivalry, but 
only an earnest and prayerful desire for the largest measure of usefulness and 
prosperity for it, and a readiness to extend the hand of helpfulness should it 
ever be needed. J. D. HUFHAM,

IIAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 37 



FOURTH DAY. 

Satukdav, Nov. 20, 1886. 

The President called the body to order, and asked Elder 
E. S. Alderman, of Chapel Hill, to conduct devotional 
exercises, who read Isaiah 55, and led in prayer. 

The minutes of yesterday were read and approved. 

The question recurring on the resolutions of Elder T. H. 
Pritchard, which were pending at the adjournment yes- 
terday, they were withdrawn, and the following, offered by 
Elder DURHAM, were adopted : 

Whereas, Thomas Meredith spent his life from early manhood within the 
bounds of our State ; and whereas, he was one of the founders and steadfast 
supporters of this body ; and whereas, it is largely due to his sagacity in found- 
ing the Biblical Recorder, and his zeal, courage and ability in advocating the 
principles which characterize us as a people that we are indebted for our 
prosperity ; therefore, 

Resolved. That we would rejoice to Icnow that a suitable memoir of him had 
been prepared. 

Resolved, That it would give us pleasure to know that Elder Thomas H. 
Pritchard had undertaken to prepare such a memoir. 

Elder Strickland offered the following report on Peri- 
odicals, which was made the special order for 12 o'clock 
to-da}' : 

REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

This Convention is to be congratulated, first, that we have but one Baptist 
newspaper ; secondly, that it is so good. In the Biblical Recorder we have a 
periodical that we may most cheerfully commend to our people, feeling that 
when inducing them to subscribe for it we are conferring on them a real benefit. 
'" We rejoice to know that it is in profoundest sympathy with all our great 
denominational issues, and is doing its utmost to advance these causes. The 
Recorder is just the paper we need, cheap enough for all ; it furnishes pabulum 
suitable for all classes ; is conducted on common sense principles ; bold in expo- 
sure of error, ready in defence of truth ; safe in all its doctrinal utterances ; 
.eminently devout in tone ; a most valuable coadjutor of the pastor and Sunday 



38 MINUTES OF THE 

school teacher ; a most welcome visitor in every family. Pastors who duly 
appreciate this, and extend its circulation, are but facilitating both their pulpit 
and pastoral work and aiding in the progress of educational, mission and orphan- 
age enterprises. Let pastors then resolve to put the Recorder mio every house- 
hold in their congregations. 

We also eommend T/ie IVake Forest Student, published through students at 
Wake Forest as worthy the support of those wlTo love pure literature. 

T/ie Foreign Mission Journal, published at Richmond, gives us at small 
cost full and accurate information on all our Foreign Mission work. 

Kind Words, published at Atlanta, G;i.. the paper of our Southern Baptist 
Convention, is well adapted to the work of the Sunday schools. 

We also commentl The Youiii; Reaper and the other publications of the 
American Baptist Publication Society at Philadelphia. 

Signed for the committee by WM. HENRY STRICKLAND, 

ChairiJian. 

The hour for the special order having arrived, Col. SUGG, 
of Greenville, N. C, wa.s introduced and addressed the Con- 
vention concerning the Baptist church in Greenville. 

Elder DURFL-KM offered a resolution which, after amend- 
ment and remarks, was adopted, as follows: 

Resolved, That the debt on the Greenville church be referred to a special 
committee with instructions and authority to borrow, if necessary, the money 
and pay the debt. 

The President announced the following as the cominittee : 
Elder C. Durham. Brethren J. xM. Heck, Noah Big(;s. 

The Secretary read the report of the Board of Education, 
which, after remarks by Elder TllOS. Hl\ME, A. D. HUN- 
TER, R. T. Vann, H. W. Battle. J. M. McMannawav, 
was adopted, as follows : 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

During the past year your Board has aided, for longer or shorter periods, 
forty-two young ministers, all of Wake borest College. Nine others are pay- 
ing their own expenses there. Of the beneficiaries thirteen were received this 
fall. Some twenty others, endorsed by their pastors and churches, we weie 
compelled to decline to avoid an oppressive debt. While the calls for aid have 
so largely increased, our receipts have fallen four hundred dollars below t?ose 
of last year. And yet, at the earnest request of churches and Associations, we 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 39 

have continued to assume the care of thirty-three young brethren for the present 
session. 

We are compelled to report a debt of nearly three hundred (300) dollars. We 
would earnestly urge the churches to enlarge their contributions to this work, 
that we may be enabled not only to cancel this debt, but also to welcome to the 
advantages of our College every needy young Baptist minister who may appeal 
to us for aid. W. L. POTKAT, President .

Elder N. B. COBB read the report on Obituaries, which 
Avas adopted, as follows : 

REPORT ON OBITUARIES. 

Since the last session of this body the following brethren in the ministry have 
passed from their work on earth to their reward in heaven, viz : Elders N. A. 
Purefoy of Wake Forest, Daniel Wester of Franklin, R. A. Patterson of Orange, 
Jordan H. Cobb of Robeson. 

Elder Purefoy belonged to a family of Baptist ministers well known in North 
Carolina. He was the son of Elder John Purefoy, who was a prominent min- 
ister in the Raleigh Association, and who raised three sons, all of whom became 
prominent ministers of the gospel in North Carolina. He was born in the 
county of Wake, graduated at Columbian College, and was pastor a short time 
at Fayetteville, Tarboro and Greenville. Most of his ministerial work was 
however spent with country churches in the Tar River Association, where he was 
honored and loved for his unostentatious piety, his liberal advocacy of every 
good work, his amiable deportment, and his happy domestic relations. He was 
in his 76th year at the time of his death. 

Elder Daniel Wester was an aged minister of the Tar River Association, a 
man without education, except in the Bible, but an earnest advocate of all the 
enterprises of this Convention. He entered the ministry late in life, was a 
<iuaint bul very interesting speaker, and is held in grateful remembrance by all 
who knew him. 

-ijElder R. A. Patterson had been for years a prominent figure in the Mi. Zion 
Association. Without early advantages, he rose gradually from humble pov- 
erty to competency, was an earnest advocate of missions, and scrupulously de- 
voted one-tenth of his income to the cause of Christ. He did much mission 
work in the bounds of the Sandy Creek and Mt. Zion Associations, and his 
labors were greatly blessed in protracted meetings and mission stations. 

Elder Jordan H. Cobb was a minister who spent most of his time in the Cape 
Fear and Cedar Creek Associations. Educated in English only, he was, in hi. 
younger days, an interesting and effective speaker. He was a fast friend of the 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 4I 

Baptist State Cunvention, and an advocate of all its enterprises from the very 
beginning of his ministry. For the past seven or eight years his age had pre- 
vented his assuming the pastoral care of churches. 

Biographical sketches of all these brethren have appeared already in the Bib- 
lical Recorder. 

N. B. COBB, Chairman. 

Elder J. W. Perrv read the following report from the 
Committee on the Building of Houses of Worship, which 
was adopted : 

Wherkas, The growth of our denomination in North Carolina is contin- 
ually calling upon the liberality of the Baptists to build houses of worship, 
and recognizing the fact that we need a committee whose duty it shall be to 
look after the building of those houses in the erection of which the Baptists of 
the State take a part : therefore 

Resolved, That a committee of five be appointed, consisting of brethren W. 
A. French, J. W. Collins, J. C. Stevenson, D. L. Gore and J. S. Mitchell, 
said committee to be located in the city of Wilmington, and whose duty it shall 
be to consider all applications for help to aid in building houses of worship, 
and who shall consider the location, plans and cost of the buildings and decide 
upon the manner and extent of aid that shall be rendered.

REPORT ON BAPTLST ORPHANAGE. 

Our Orphanage work has been rapidly, but quietly, progressing during the 
past year. Houses for twenty-four boys and for twenty-four girls have been 
finished and filled. Other buildings are approaching completion, and we hope 
in a few weeks to have room for other poor and promising orphans now apply- 
ing for admission. A neat and plain chapel is nearly finished, and we are 
endeavoring to teach our orphans the faith and practice of the New Testament 
as we understand it. 

Contributions in cash, and in food and clothiug, are needed and will be 
gratefully received. 

We specially recommend that all our brethren and sisters (by paying one 
dollar each) become members of the Orphanage Association and attend its 
annual meetings on the last Wednesday in July, and participate in its manage- 
ment.

♦Statistics of 1885. 

f As will be seen from the above, only 37 of the 84 Associations — less than 
half — have reported the number of baptisms for the year. If we may estimate 
the total number from the figures reported, we must conclude that more than 
twenty thousand h7i\e been baptized into our churches this year. 

The r.ame might be said of the number of Sunday schools, as only 29 of the 
Associations have reported iheir'schools, and 55 have given no reports.
